COVID-19 (Third Update)

It’s Friday! Honestly, we have lost track of what day it is here in our house!

We got the news yesterday that our schools were going to be remained closed until April 24. We were supposed to go back April 6, but there are still too many cases of COVID-19 going around.

President Trump stated that non-essential workers need to stay home now until April 30, so it will be interesting to see if we go back or not on April 24. My guess is we won’t be going back this school year.

Chris and I have been going on a lot of walks. We are enjoying this slower time with the girls. Lots of board games, lots of family dinners, and being lazy!

In our county alone we now have 7 confirmed cases.

Here was the breakdown for MO the other day:

And another update that Katie Couric posted; the numbers are alarmingly high!

We are praying for everyone involved in this pandemic. Those that are still working and those affected by this virus!

Here is another thing I saw on FB that I want to always remember as well:
